AC Milan’s plans for Alessandro Florenzi have changed compared to what they first envisioned when signing him in the summer, a report claims.
Milan officially announced the signing of Florenzi from Roma on an initial loan deal back on August 21 after negotiations that were intense between the two clubs. It is a one-year loan but there is also an option to make the move permanent, meaning if all goes well the Rossoneri will most likely exercise that option next summer.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) has highlighted the many possibilities and alternatives that Milan has this season from a point of view of squad depth.
The paper claims that Florenzi – who was signed to be the deputy right-back to Davide Calabria initially – is actually now seen as the first alternative to Alexis Saelemaekers in the more advanced right wing position. Pierre Kalulu is now the man behind Calabria in the pecking order, as per the report.
Florenzi has made six appearances in all competition thus far but has mostly been restricted to substitute appearances, and is currently out with an injury.
